About the Program
Enjoy one-of-a-kind art projects themed around Skirball exhibitions. Reinforcing the values of collaboration, community, and caring for the world around us, projects will ignite the imaginations of your family members, whether they are 2 or 102!
July 16–28: Pop Art Portraits—Design an Andy Warhol–style portrait of someone who inspires you.
July 30–August 11: Album Covers—Inspired by the album covers on display in Black Is Beautiful: The Photography of Kwame Brathwaite, design your own that expresses who you are or what you care about.
August 13–September 1: Music Making—Make an instrument to use at one of our Family Amphitheater Performances this summer!
“The Skirball [Cultural] Center’s exhibitions are guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing, so put the mojo to good use in the museum’s Family Art Studio. The bright, colorful space is marketed to kiddos, what with the low tables and a toddler-friendly play nook outfitted with books, toys, and beanbag chairs. Staff and volunteers offer as much or as little hand-holding as your future Picasso wants.”—“The Best Things to Do in LA in 2018,” Los Angeles magazine
